We are well into the digital age and yet the flood of paperwork persists. While information can be readily translated into an electronic format, speeding along engagement and distribution highways, the digital process will come to a grinding halt at its most critical juncture: the point at which signatures are required from involved parties to complete business documents and processes. For credit unions, this can be felt in a number of areas and in differing ways.

In fact, a 2018 report from Ernst and Young titled Digital Enterprise Transformation indicated that 65 percent of financial executives believed their revenues improved thanks to their digital transformation plans.

5 Reasons Integrated eSignatures Matter

We provide additional value with our unique integrations to many financial system applications that are simply not available with alternative eSignature vendors. Let’s review the 5 reasons that make integrated eSignatures important considerations as you explore solutions to empower your institution’s digital transformation.

IMM eSign for Credit Unions

The Credit Union and Financial Services landscape can be as challenging as it is complex. Competition is stronger than ever, while regulations and compliance continue to be a priority for institutions. Yet, many of the documents and transactions generated within credit unions remain paper-based. This complicates the operating environment. Paperbased processing is costly, time consuming, and requires cumbersome policies and management practices — not to mention the impact paper-based processes and transactions have on the credit union member.

IMM eSign for Banks

The Banking and Financial Services landscape can be as challenging as it is complex. Competition is stronger than ever, while regulations and compliance continue to be a priority for institutions. Yet, many of the documents and transactions generated within banks remain paper-based. This complicates the operating environment. Paper-based processing is costly, time consuming, and requires cumbersome policies and management practices — not to mention the impact paper-based processes and transactions have on the banking customer.

IMM eSign Remote

The Internet, along with mobile devices, have given consumers great freedom with respect to how and when they can conduct personal business. With this new freedom comes expectations, expectations financial institutions must accommodate in order to meet the needs of the modern consumer. To remain relevant in this competitive market, financial institutions must provide convenience and ease-of-access for their consumers to conduct both personal and professional business “on-demand.”

IMM eSign Add-On Modules

eSign is IMM’s enterprise document presentment and eSignature platform. As a contemporary technology application, IMM eSign can be customized with a number of standard parameters and options, helping your institution adapt eSignatures to your specific business needs. For more sophisticated or individualized requirements, IMM has also developed a family of add-on modules that extend the value and benefits you can realize from your investment.

IMM eChecks

IMM eChecks is an intuitive software solution that generates official and batch checks, where they are printed “ondemand” to laser printers using blank stock security paper. With this eCheck solution, financial institutions eliminate the preprinting of blank check documents, and subsequent stock-control traditionally associated with pre-printed negotiable checks. Once eChecks have been printed— complete with logic controlled authorized signatures —the PDF version of the finalized check along with its associated indexes can be filed directly into any Imaging/ECM system for records archival.

IMM eReceipts

One of IMM’s most-popular eTransaction applications, IMM eReceipts enables the financial institution to generate “digital” or electronic receipts for teller transactions and deliver eReceipts via secure, electronic methods to the member.

IMM eTeller Check21

Check21 enables financial institutions to process and clear checks using electronic images and data. Now, IMM’s eTeller Check21 solution—an add-on module to the eReceipts platform—enables the institution to truncate the paper check directly at the teller line during the actual in-person transaction. eTeller Check21 enables processing efficiencies to begin earlier while improving the member service and satisfaction provided by this state-of-the-art Check21 processing solution.
